08:23 AM ET 10.02 | There is no bigger star in the NHL -- at least not in stature. The agent for Zdeno Chara said [Monday] morning that the Bruins captain's search for a European team is starting to get a little more serious. "He's looking at all his options. He may stay here, but right now I think he's leaning toward playing (in Europe). We'll probably have a decision within a week," said Matt Keator. Chara played in Sweden during the lockout of 2004-05, but right now the top league there is not allowing NHL players to sign contracts with an escape clause in the event the NHL lockout ends during the season. There are other options such as the Czech Republic, Germany or Russia.
